What does the lantern signify?
By Author Chess Sesalls

I love this question, almost as much as I dread answering it. I have a particular interpretation in mind, but one of my favorite bits of feedback was from a reader who said Lantern could be interpreted many ways. Depending on the reader’s background, experiences, spirituality, and imagination, the lanterns could represent many things. So could Machin.

Therefore, I’m hesitant to tell you what the lanterns are and what they mean to me. I don’t want to ruin the story for anyone who hasn’t read the collection, and I don’t want to influence readers’ own special interpretations. However, I’m very open to individual feedback through email and Facebook messages. If you and your followers would like to discuss your thoughts in the comments below, I’m certainly happy to read them.
